They’re also the perfect choice of day trip for racing enthusiasts or those looking for a fun day out with friends. 

Why not treat yourselves to tickets on Ladies Day if you’re organising a party for the girls or a hen do? Days at the races are very popular for stag parties. You can sort out betting slips, beers and boxes in advance of the groom’s big day.

How can my group travel to the racecourse?

Forest Coaches can transport you to and from the racetrack. We have mini buses for up to 16 people or you can hire one of our coaches for up to 48 people. 

There’s no need to appoint someone as designated driver. You can relax knowing someone else will take care of the travel arrangements. This can often be one of the most stressful parts of a trip. 

When your day reaches the finish line we can take you to the races. We’ll pick you up afterwards to take you back to your hotel, home or self-catered accommodation.
